I discovered this week that the Maury show is still on television, with grinning host Maury Povich busting cheaters and soothing folks with atypical fears every afternoon with just as much fervor as ever. With a quick Internetz search I also learned that Povich’s marriage to journalist Connie Chung is still going strong (see above photo, from 2010) after 27 years–675 years in Hollywood time, and that the seemingly unlikely pair only seem to be acquiring adorable laugh lines with age. Good for them!
Here’s hoping that Povich’s family (He and Chung have one son, as well as two daughters from his previous marriage) had a nice little celebration for the trash talk king’s 72nd birthday this past Monday. That’s assuming he doesn’t have a paralyzing fear of birthday cakes or anything…

Happy birthday to Connie Chung, who turned 62 on Wednesday. Her dragon lady eye-makeup and softball-style of journalism has made us squirm over the years, yet we can’t help but love her. For a long time, she seemed to be the only dignified Asian figure on television. She was not only drop-dead gorgeous, but she kicked ass in her profession, becoming the second woman to co-anchor the evening news (after Barbara Walters). Connie spawned a whole generasian of imitators, but she remains an untouchable icon (not to mention drop-dead gorgeous, decades younger-looking than 62, and chic as all get out). We also love that, despite her beauty and achievements, she still possesses some endearing, cuddly qualities, like converting to Judaism for hubby Maury Povich–which makes her Chewish–and poking fun at herself.
